Everywhere You Can Get Free & Cheap Cookies for National Cookie Day

December 4 a day dedicated to cookies. Celebrate accordingly.

This one sits somewhere between pointless and delicious. National Cookie Day lands on Saturday, December 4. Cookies probably don't need their own day, but they have got one. 

The only way we know how to celebrate food holidays like this is either to make the food ourselves or to head somewhere where people will make it for you. (I suppose ignoring it entirely would be a third option.) If you're looking to do the latter—that'd be eating cookies baked by another human—we can help. Shops like Nestlé Toll House Cafe, BJ's, and Mrs. Field will be offering free and discounted cookies for National Cookie Day. We've pulled all of the best deals together in one place to help you track down the cookies you crave. 

Here are the best deals on cookies for National Cookie Day.
